The Superhero Room - the Last Chapter

I am thrilled to report that Rex's superhero room is totally completed.  Here's a video tour.  If you don't do videos, then you can check out the pictures below.



Here's the room in action.  It's my sister filming, but her speaking voice is almost identical to mine.  Freaky, I know.  (Pay no attention to the quick flash of three-year-old bum crack.  It's inevitable with him :)


Here's a final look, with links to previous posts that have more info on each part.

Here's the superhero bed my dad built and I painted and designed.  The boys love playing on it and under it.






Here's an old telephone picture I had.  Superman always changes his clothes in a phone booth, you know.


Here's the superhero car and reading nook I built from cardboard.  It's actually really sturdy.


Here's the giant Super Rex newspaper article I made.  I decided to paint a green frame behind it because the color was super close to the wall color.  The vinyl Pow, Wham, and Bam decals came from Off the Wall Expressions on etsy.  I love that shop.


This print came from Momo Prints on etsy.  Emilie is currently offering all of you 20% off your order by entering Momma20 at check out.  (This coupon code expires on March 20.)


And now my work here is done! 


Thank you so much for dropping in!  See you tomorrow for Wake Up Wednesday.

ADDENDUM: If you are looking for the bed plans, you can now find them HERE on my dad's blog.

  58. Great room. It's good to see fun rooms for boys. =)

    Not sure if you have considered this, but have you thought about putting something on the top corners of the slide? Boys will be boys and well.... I just remember my siblings always managed to hurt themselves. It just looks pretty pointy on the pictures.

  59. That is the coolest bedroom I've ever seen.

    1. Hi
      I absolutely LOVE your work here and particularly love the paintings but there doesn't look to be a working link here to the blog that inspired it, could you possibly repost the link if you can remember it please?
      Thanks in advance!

  76. Just wanted you to know that I adore this room and I pinned some of the pictures onto my pinterest page! I gave you full credit! I love them!

  77. I'm new here and have being spending my free moments these last 2 days reading a bunch of your posts. I think its awesome how creative your family is! You dad built the bed Mom made paintings and quilt, sister wrote the article, not to mention all the work you did! I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I am an adult woman. That being said, I want that room!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I love this room! I came across the photo booth/super hero cape photo on pinterest and had to know how you did it! I'm decorating my son's room in letters/numbers and just had to add this special touch. Now I just have to find the perfect photo booth photo (if you can recommend where/how to do this I would really appreciate it). Thank you for the inspiration! You did an amazing job overall and I love the bed too!!

  80. Brooke - Do you mean the phone booth picture? I got it at Z Gallerie, but that was years ago. Sorry if that doesn't help much.

  81. I'm fairly certain that our boys are destined to be best friends. Mine too LOVE superheroes and change their clothes hourly to be whatever superhero they want to be at the time. LOVE this room, you did a fantastic job! We made my oldest a Batman nursery so we kind of made him like it but that's not a bad thing, right? :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. Love what you've created! I'm making a simply super hero room for my son and currently working on a flannel super hero quilt. I would love to do something similar to the "door" art but was wondering how you attached it to the wall. Did you add hooks on the back and hang it or did you do something like you would to attach a mantle to a fireplace?

    Thanks for all the inspiration,
    Denise

  83. This is TOO stinkin' cute for words! love all the retro touches.

  88. That painting is amazing! Totally makes the theme and Rex can grow with it too, it's not too babyish. What a beautiful job.

    ReplyDelete
  89. What a great idea for a super heros bedroom. I copied your city scape as well as the Batman/Superman paintings. My little boy likes Larry Boy, so I painted him instead. I also used glow in the dark paint for the windows and spotlight on the city mural. What fun! I can't wait to put it up! Thank you for your great ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I was left a comment on my blog that I needed to share my superhero cake with you because your boys liked superheroes. First let me say that your boys are darling and this is the cutest room ever. I remember my daughter showing it to me awhile ago. She has been a fan of yours forever.You are very talented! The link below is of my cake that I made for my grandson. Would love for you to pop on over!

  91. I love this room, you have inspired me into doing a superhero themed nursery. One question, the city background picture is that a wall sticker or did you paint that onto the wall?

    1. I painted it on, but you could probably find a cool vinyl decal if you didn't want to paint it.

  93. I browsed the comments and didn't see. What color is the gray of the walls? I am looking for the perfect gray that is does not appear blue or purple. Having trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Love the room. I'm sure that my four superheroes would love it too. And then, to top it off I saw a print of one of my favorite Primary songs...SCRIPTURE POWER! That rocks! Always love to find cool Mormon Mommas! :)

    ReplyDelete
  95. Just like everyone else... I would love plans for the amazing bed! I would also like to purchase that superhero artwork. Would your mother be willing to make more and sell them? Thanks! I love your son's room and want to recreate it for my little superhero.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Can your mom duplicate the superhero picture? How much would it be?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No she can't. Sorry! For one, it was highly inspired by the pictures I mentioned above with the link. And secondly she's not up for recreating it either. Thanks for asking though.
